Apple Butter Gift Tags
by Jinny Newlin
Morning, y'all! It's Jinny here today, sharing a couple more of my apple butter gift tags. For the first one, I turned our Bauble Tree Background die into a tag itself; and for the second, I had lots of fun creating a watercolor scene.
I started this tag by die-cutting the Bauble Tree Background base from Basic Black cardstock and topping it with a die-cut, from silver, glitter cardstock, Merry Bauble Tree. It's bottom edge was then decked out with a silver-embossed, on a strip of black cardstock, "MERRY CHRISTMAS" sentiment, which I popped up with foam tape.
and its top was simply punched with a small hole through which to thread white string, which was tied, in a bow, after being laced through a black button and embellished with lots of fabulous, color-coordinating ribbons and trims, tied in bows themselves.
It was watercolored and speckled in shades of aqua and turquoise. I then die-cut the Winter Pine from textured, Garden Green cardstock. Before popping it out of the die, I sponged it up with VersaMark ink to emboss the layers of snow with white powder. It was then popped up with foam tape, just as the deer, which was die-cut from Soft Suede cardstock, was. I couldn't help but give the deer a little, red, rhinestone nose, before splattering everything with Titanium White acrylic paint.
Before the tag was laced, through a punched hole, surrounded with a die-cut, Crumb Cake cardstock ring, and tied in a bow, another scrumptious, white, glitter, cardstock Ava Snowflake die cut was added, to the tree, to complete the look.
